Amanda Evora at nats
Just wanted to mention that Amanda Evora looked more relaxed and happy and almost bubbly behind the boards coaching than I have ever seen her at any event she was competeing at.
Wicked Yankee Girl
You could see that on TV I'm happy for her.
Me too. I hope she stays as a coach and does well. The ear bug tech guy said that a person doing a triple comes down with 8 times the force of gravity and that some skaters have shock absorbers in their boots. I have no idea how a pairs lady's body takes such punishment for years. Jumping and then being thrown. I am sure there must be a technique to lessen the shock but I have to wonder if she is happy to still be in skating as well as being happy to not have made the "big Mistake" and have to leave crippled.
Chris who had to leave his job crippled but who still is out there having fun... You go Amanda! You rock!
